For others, partner preferences drive their grooming habits.
In the 2013 survey, around 21.1 percent of women reported that their pubic grooming was related to partner preference. The same survey showed that a similar percentage of men also groom according to their partner’s desire.
In a 2015 study, men were more likely than women to report a preference for a pubic hair-free $e-xual partner.
In contrast, women were more likely to cite that they preferred trimmed or partially shaved or waxed pubic hair.
